"Used about 1.5 cups fresh crabmeat and served on toasted baguette slices. Omitted capers and hot sauce. Very good."

"Thanks bfify80. I'm so glad you "messed up" by mixing up the recipe and putting it in the over for 30 minutes. I will make it that way. This sounds delicious! I can't wait to make it, and rate it "will make again" later :)"

"I messed up and did not read the directions all the way through before making it. I did not see that it needed to be in a crock pot for a few hours and so I still mixed it up and put it in the oven for 20-30 minutes and it tasted great!! Next time will make it the "right" way!!"
